Instructions Checklist
  • Arrange the lettuce, prosciutto, soppressatta, turkey, cheese, onions, gherkins, and mustard on a platter. Serve with the artichoke hearts and baguette slices. Tip: Take the cold cuts out of the refrigerator about 20 minutes before placing them on the platter. At room temperature, they'll be tastier, more tender, and less likely to tear.
